AKA. Post-Truth Censorship: The Surprising Science of Shutdown Detection: Wednesday 8 March 2017 (9:45AM - Gallery Front): Discover the new technologies being deployed to combat internet shutdowns, social media blackouts and online mass-censorship as governments invent new “killswitches” to take control political narrative and restrict opposition voices.

We are Turkey Blocks, Turkey’s independent internet shutdown watchdog.
